Last week a few @farmerstoyou sitehosts took part in Estella's Pollinator Garden Raising for the birds, butterflies and bees 🐦🦋🐝 A garden raising is like an old-fashioned barn raising, where neighbors come together to build a barn in an afternoon, only in this case it’s a garden! Volunteers gather to transform the host’s land into an edible food forest in one day, using design elements and projects selected by the host in consultation with @bostonfoodforest It was a wonderful experience on a beautiful day! Have you ever been to a Garden Raising?

24/5/19 Broccoli growing in the allotment, after late autumn rain. . Coming from the tropics where anything that grows probably grows year-round, eating seasonally has been a refreshing challenge since moving here. Lately, we’ve also adopted a more planet-friendly diet by reducing our weekly meat intake and focusing on largely plant-centric meals; not exactly the easiest endeavour when your partner’s a chef and loves everything animal-based. But better starting somewhere and failing imperfectly than never trying at all. The winter Brassicas coming into season are also perfectly-timed to help our transition (fact: Broccoli has more protein per calorie than beef). Probably best summed up by Michael Pollan’s concise advice on better eating which makes a whole lot of sense for seven words: "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”

"No one set out to ruin the land or harm the animals or impoverish our rural communities. But collectively we decided we wanted really cheap, really abundant food, and in the narrow efforts to make food cheap and abundant through centralization, commoditization and industrialization, we sacrificed the rural economy and the degradation of the land and the welfare of the animals.” Will Harris, owner of @whiteoakpastures . . . . #farmerstoyou #farmersmarket #foodactivism #eatingisanagriculturalact #foodpolitics #wedeliver #bostoneats #community #movement #therealorganicproject #gatheraroundthetable #farmtofamily #organicstandards #supportyourfarmer #local #grownwithlove #takecareoftheplanet #youcanmakeachange #soilgrown #vermonttoboston #sustainableagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #oldendaywisdom #humane #healthy #healthypeoplehappyplanet #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #family #joinus

At Farmers To You we are committed to doing our part to sustain our communities, environment and planet. We are always working on new strategies to decrease waste. We are excited to share that @jerichosettlersfarm has switched its packaging to recycled and recyclable plastic containers for all salad greens! We applaud their eco-conscious commitment and are excited to be sending you all more recycled and recyclable containers. JSF: “Many customers have voiced the desire to see less plastic and more reusable materials when shopping for produce, and we feel the same. Our commitment to growing good food in a sustainable way extends all the way to the grocery store shelves, and your dinner tables thereafter. While we wish we could do away with plastic altogether - and that may be the case in the future - in the meantime, our goal is to provide you with the freshest produce of the highest quality, in the most responsible packaging available. Plastic containers ensure greens don’t wilt or bruise.” . . . . #farmerstoyou #farmersmarket #foodactivism #eatingisanagriculturalact #foodpolitics #wedeliver #bostoneats #community #movement #therealorganicproject #gatheraroundthetable #farmtofamily #organicstandards #supportyourfarmer #local #grownwithlove #takecareoftheplanet #youcanmakeachange #soilgrown #vermonttoboston #sustainableagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #oldendaywisdom #humane #healthy #healthypeoplehappyplanet #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #family #reducereuserecycle

3/5/19 Warrigal greens (Tetragonia tetragonoides) or New Zealand spinach that was left growing in the allotment I had across the semester. . Considered a weed by some, but this native bush food tasted pretty similar to true spinach in a stir-fry. . Also interesting, this species is a succulent and halophyte (salt-loving) belonging to the Aizoaceae or iceplant family. The leaf surface of iceplants have little bladder cells that store accumulated salt, giving that characteristic crystalline glisten. Along with the closely-related and edible common iceplant (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum), these have potential uses in regenerating degraded agricultural land with high salinity.

30/4/19 If there’s just one lesson to take from growing food, it would probably be this: nothing is certain. . Not tomorrow's risk of frost, or late blight that could decimate an entire promising crop. And yet, that innate human desire for certainty, the curious voice that comes questioning what tomorrow holds. The same one that fuels our fear/fascination of the unknown. . And so finally, the promised transition to a second graduation, official unemployment (again), uncertainty about our immediate rights to remain in this country, and a heavy heap of paperwork to plough through. Probably no better time than now to learn this, the irony, after years of growing food.

RepostBy @jasperhillfarm : "We’re gonna need this later... our cropping crew is hustling to harvest the bright green bounty of early summer. With only 90 frost free days in the Northeast Kingdom and rainy summers we have to plan carefully for winter forages. These bales are on the way to our cropping center where they will be zapped of any remaining moisture so they can be stored without any microbial spoilage. Quality dry hay from local pastures is the cornerstone of our raw milk cheese program. Good thing the tractor has headlights - these guys were at it late into Saturday night; make hay whether the sun shines or not!!” #rawmilkcheese #realdeal #cropping #notallheroswearshirts

RepostBy @emilyroachwellness (a FTY member...make sure to follow her amazing instagram!) "I love cooking and eating seafood, but I know not everyone is comfortable preparing a new seafood, or trying new recipes. But once you learn about the basics of cooking seafood, it can become one of the easiest (and fastest) dinners you can feed your family. This is our grilled swordfish from last night that takes 10 minutes to cook. Let it rest to make it melt in your mouth delicious. 🐟 The key is to start with quality seafood. I got our swordfish at our local farmers market yesterday, but I have also ordered from @farmerstoyou with @redsbest. You can taste the difference. 🍽 For this swordfish, I just drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and a small sprinkle of @bragglivefoodproducts spices. Grill each side for 5 minutes and then let rest for a bit.

“We garden for so many reasons, but most of all because we love to eat! The flavor of a ripe tomato, the burst of flavor from chives sprinkled onto eggs, or the spicy snap of a fresh radish - all of these things keep us going when the weeds get tough.” (Quote by Becca, FTY member and founder of @not_so_secret_garden ) We hope you found some inspiration this week to take with you to your own garden.

Day 5 of National Garden Week: MAGIC ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are few pleasures more profound than watching a seed sprout and grow. Pure magic! In preparation of our plant swap and seed giveaway at sites this week, here are a few simple pointers for planting your seeds: Poke a few drain holes in your planting vessel so your seeds don't drown. Put your potting mix in a bowl, dampen it with a little water, knead the soil with your hands. Fill a vessel with potting soil. Our friends at Vermont Compost (and their team of chickens) make some of the best living potting soil around. Make a small indent about 3 times the size of the seed in your potting soil. Drop your seed in. Cover it up. Sing it a song. Gently water your seed so the soil is saturated but not dripping. Put it in a sunny window. Keep watering your plant every day or so. It should be damp most of the time and occasionally dry out a bit (but never bone dry). Watch your sprout emerge! and Grow! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want your plant to keep growing, you can transplant it to a bigger pot or outside to your garden. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Gardening!

30/4/19 Green oak leaf lettuce in early autumn sun. . Spent a semester experiencing first-hand the hard work that goes behind breeding a good head of lettuce. Cultivating a new variety takes years of laborious selection, but all that time and toil can so quickly be undone by a small change in ambient temperatures. The implications of rapid climate change cannot be more real when a crop's heat, disease and pest resistance fails and food cannot be produced, especially in parts of the world where its needed most. It's not someone else’s duty to address the problem when we all collectively need to put food in our bodies daily just to survive. As an evolved species on this planet, we need to acknowledge that this is not a drill and we can no longer think short-term gains when this will most definitely hit home in our lifetime.

Crunchy, salty, smoky, sweet...it’s taco night! Fill your table with versatile and vibrant combinations of vegetables, cheeses, beans and smoky meats. Serve with warm heirloom corn tortillas, top with salsa and a dollop of skyr or yogurt. @allsoulstortilleria offers a classic base for this easy dinner option. Their organic Corn Tortillas are made with nixtamalized corn, a traditional process in which locally grown whole kernel corn is cooked in water with slaked limestone. The steeped corn kernels are stone ground into masa which is then shaped and cooked over a fire to make a delicious and nutritious tortilla. WHATS YOUR FAVORITE TOPPING? We love Fiesta Roja by @sobremesavt made with red cabbage, carrots, onions, garlic, jalapeños, lime juice, sea salt, cumin, oregano and chipotle.

BRUTALLY HONEST POST ALERT While our customer base in Cincinnati has been thriving since we began growing food for our community over 10 years ago, we have struggled to find support in Jerry's hometown of Madison. Early on, we gave the local farmers market a go for a couple seasons but it was unsuccessful. A few years ago, we decided to try again, and began offering our CSA in town, to see if we could find enthusiasm for the local, fresh food that we raise right here in the hills of Jefferson County. Once a week on Monday evenings during CSA season, we deliver fresh vegetables, pastured eggs, plus grassfed meats as add-on items. It is just a 12 mile drive to downtown Madison from our farm. For most consumers, it doesn't get much more local than that.🌱 Fast forward 4 seasons, and we are struggling to see any growth with our most local CSA memberships. In fact, this year, we've hit an all time low. We have a handful of very dedicated customers who continue to renew every season, for whom we are very grateful. 🙏But sadly, we fear that 2019 might have to be our last CSA season in Madison unless we can reverse the numbers. ☹️ Why are we sharing this depressing, brutally honest news, instead of the cheerful and funny scenes of farm life we typical bring you? We are sharing all this because we still have a bit of hope that Madison can be the vibrant local food hub that it once was. There is still a chance that we can reach enough of the good people of Jefferson County who care about where their food comes from, and who are committed to supporting local farmers in a tangible way. We're not sure exactly what the solution is to reach our nearest locavores, but you can help! While CSA is not right for everyone, there are plenty of people who are a good fit who just don't know about what we offer. Help us spread the word by liking and sharing this post, and by letting your friends and family know about us. If you are a continuing CSA member, what is it that keeps you coming back? Tell your friends. We are also open to your ideas and suggestions for how to best connect with people. The first CSA pickup of the season is set for TONIGHT from [cont...]

Während ich warte, bis die Kostbarkeiten im Küchengarten geerntet werden können ❄🙃, erzähle ich heute von zwei Exoten aus den Anden, die heuer im Küchengarten für wunderschöne Blumen und im Winter kostbare Knollen sorgen werden: Yacón-Wurzel (links) und Knollige Kapuzinerkresse. Die Yacón-Wurzel wurden für mich von einem lieben Mitglieder des Netzwerks 'Urkorn Tirol Oberland' vorgezogen. Die Knollen sind köstlich: saftig und süß, erinnert an Birne und Apfel. Sie ist auch für Diabetiker interessant, weil der enthaltene Mehrfachzucker Oligofructose als Zuckerersatz geeignet ist. Ein wahrer 'Erd-Apfel'! Die Knollige Kapuzinerkresse wurde für den Küchengarten von Christoph Bickel / Restaurant Oniriq gesorgt und wird seit März im kleinen Gewächshaus vorgezogen. Die Blätter erinnern an der herkömmlichen Kapuzinerkresse, sind aber fester und schmecken nicht so erfrischend. Die Rebe klettert bis zu 4 m und produziert delikate rot-orangen Blüten. Sie wird als Zierpflanze genützt, uns geht es aber um die Knollen: wie ein fester Apfel, erfrischend und saftig mit einer ordentlichen Schärfe im Abgang. Also, wenn alles gut geht, wird es im Winterlager eine schöne Vielfalt an Wurzelgemüse geben. Spannend, dass die besten Speiseknollen aus Südamerika kommen. Dort ist nämlich auch der beliebte Kartoffel zuhause. Von wegen Ausländer.😉 😊 #berggemüse #wurzelgemüse #wintervorrat #exoten #yacon #knolligekapuzinerkresse #vielfaltamtellerhängtvonvielfaltamfeldab #growingfoodisaculturalact #eatingisanagriculturalact #südamerikaineuropa

The folks at @redhenbaking take sourcing of ingredients quite seriously, using local grains whenever possible. They have recently transitioned to using 100% Vermont grown rye from Thornhill Farm of Greensboro, Vermont! In order to make this transition, they invested in a stone mill to grind the rye berries into fresh rye flour at the bakery, weekly. Randy made a trip to Jansen Grist Mills of North Carolina where they taught him the craft of sharpening the granite millstones to maintain the mill, a skill currently held by few. From grain to granite, freshly milled flour brings a full flavored loaf of bread. . . . . #farmerstoyou #farmersmarket #foodactivism #eatingisanagriculturalact #foodpolitics #wedeliver #bostoneats #community #movement #therealorganicproject #gatheraroundthetable #farmtofamily #organicstandards #supportyourfarmer #local #grownwithlove #takecareoftheplanet #youcanmakeachange #soilgrown #vermonttoboston #sustainableagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #oldendaywisdom #humane #healthy #healthypeoplehappyplanet #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #bread #flour

Gestern war es so weit: die ersten Dankeschön-Pakete für Frühbucher im Abo-Programm, die bis 15. Februar ihre Bestellung abgeschlossen haben. Die Frühbucher geben mir nicht nur einen riesigen Vertrauensvorschuss. Heuer haben sie zwei Wandertunnel finanziert. 🙏 Die Abo-Gemeinschaft ist für den Küchengarten sehr wichtig. Als ich begann war die erste Frage immer, "Ja, aber hast du Abnehmer?" Ich bin kein "Ja, aber"-Typ und meine erste Priorität in 2017 war vielmehr der Aufbau. Bis Sep 2018 habe ich noch vollzeitig als Bildungsberaterin gearbeitet, bekam Hilfe von lieben Freunden am Beginn und stellte eine Mitarbeiterin letzte Saison an. Das war alles Investition meinerseits, und zwar in die Zukunft. Nun ist die Zukunft da. Jetzt lebe ich im mehrfachen Sinn von 2.400 qm Anbaufläche, ohne Subventionen und mit viel Knochenarbeit. Abonnenten machen es machbar, planbar und vor allem sinnvoll. Zu wissen, für wen ich Gemüse und Kräuter anbaue, ist überhaupt das Schönste. Also, liebe Frühbucher, ich melde mich direkt bei euch, wenn entsprechende Vielfalt in entsprechender Menge erntereif ist. Das Dankeschön ist wie alle Pakete ein saisonales Bild von der Tiroler Natur, derzeit: Radieschen, überwintertes Zwiebelgemüse, Blattgemüse zum Kochen (Grünkohl, Mangold, Spinat), Kräuter (Petersilie, Schnittlauch, Thymian, Blattkoriander), Frischkräuter-Teemischung und Tirols beste saisonale Salatmischung.😉

We now have two cracker to offer you from  @brewerscrackers , the hardy crackers made with spent grains (a byproduct of brewing beer). Sesame Sea Salt Crackers - This is a mighty cracker! It is thick and hearty, and pairs well with soft cheese, charcuterie or raspberry jam. This Sesame Sea Salt flavor has an addicting nutty and salty taste profile with just a hint of sweetness. Double toasted sesame seeds accent the flavor of fresh grains and 100% whole wheat flour for an amazing, hearty texture and crunch. Honey Graham Brewer's Crackers - made with cinnamon, ginger and vanilla giving them that classic graham cracker flavor. They taste great on their own but also pair well with a strong blue cheese. Don't hesitate to crumble some of these crackers on your ice cream sundae or make a campfire favorite, s'mores!

Farmers To You is committed to creating a sustainable food system without food waste. We work with over 80 local farmers and producers, and from them we order only what we've sold each week to you - our partner families. Any leftover food is used for staff dinner, donated to the Barre Food Shelf or sent to Boston in the for-sale coolers. Food scraps are composted, and no food is thrown away. We have truly created a food distribution model without food waste! Additionally, each week, our warehouse and office generates one bag of trash. This is after our 15-20 employees receive and unpack the food from our partner farms, pack all 800 of your orders, plus keep the FTY operations going. While we have doubled our orders over the last 3 years, we have not increased the amount of trash we produce at all! At the grocery store, food that appears unpackaged in the produce department can be deceiving. Packaging to protect food as it is shipped, stocked, and presented to you adds up to a large amount of plastic waste - usually unseen. We are proud to say that the packaging that arrives to you in your Farmers to You grocery bag is nearly all the packaging that was used for those products. Your food is bagged and packaged on the farm or at FTY, and then comes straight to you! You may ask, "Why do you use plastic bags in the first place!?" It's true, while Farmers To You is committed to reducing waste and environmental impact at every level, we still choose to use plastic at this time. Plastic bags preserve the delicate balance of moisture in greens and vegetables while keeping dry goods dry. They also keep your food - vegetables, for example - from touching meat or other packaging. We encourage you to reuse and recycle your plastic bags - simply wash and dry them, or stick them in the recycling. Farmers To You takes back various items for reuse. Please return the following items at your pick up site or leave them out for your delivery person: Glass Milk bottles: (Strafford only) rinsed and air dried, no lids please. Farmers To You bags Farmers To You ice packs Egg cartons (only those from FTY) Plastic tomato clamshells Packing materials
